is not the case. most of us are carrying around smart phones which are far more effective at tracking our every move than clipper cards. a recently designed smart phone application allows the phone to scan the clipper card and transmit information. it can be used without the clipper card's user's knowledge or permission. people can protect themselves from this by storing their clipper cards in a bag or somewhere, where it would be difficult for someone else to place a smart phone within a few inches of the card thus perhaps getting that information. the resolution addresses this issue. with the resolution, and i have an amendment of the whole that i have passed on to the clerk, it actually includes amendments that have been proposed by the mtc, we definitely wanted to work with the mtc on their concerns about moving forward with the new resolution and so the new resolution reflects those proposed amendments and they include a way to determine what the minimum duration of time is that -- excuse me -- it will request that the mtc provide a minimum duration of time that they will maintain clip

the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of directors chooses to use this increase the accessibility of public transportation for low income youth does not mean that the mta cannot, at the same time, turn around and use some of the money for maintenance. that somehow the lack of reliability of the system of an agency that has anpvpx& $800 min budget rests solely on the fact that it's going to make public transit more accessible to low income kids, it's simply not reflective of the reality that has been true of muni for the last few years. muni, to the extent that their issues about maintenance, the reason for that is not because of the funding of these types,%f programs. to the extent thatmine is failing or hasjpn,1 to address those issues, it is not because of somehowqpihb making public transportation more accessible to poor kids in this city. i think it's simply unfair to place that responsibility on that group. we all have ajr:ñ responsibilito make sure that we have a reliable sy
